MATR Sponsor (view all)

MAPS: “Media Arts In The Public Schools” http://www.mediarts.org has been honored with the “Community Volunteer of the Year” award from the Corvallis High School. Designated a “School to Work” program by the State of Montana, MAPS’ reputation is growing rapidly and has reached all the way to Washington, D.C.

Says Montana Congressman Denny Rehberg: “As MAPS enters into its second year, I’m proud that the Florence Prever Rosten Foundation has taken the initiative to found this organization (MAPS) and work for Montana’s middle and high school students”.

MAPS President, Peter Rosten adds: “We’re very grateful that Congressman Rehberg has taken an interest in our program. And since we’re funded through donations and not by Montana taxpayers, his support will undoubtedly lend credence to all of our efforts.”

MAPS is a media arts and filmmaking curriculum for middle and high school students ages 12 – 18. In anticipation of expansion to other rural school districts in 2006, the Florence Prever Rosten Foundation welcomes three new members to its Board of Directors: Wes Spiker, Susan Williams and Joe McLean.

Wes Spiker is President and Partner of Spiker Communications http://www.spikercomm.com . Established in 1983, the Missoula, Montana based ad agency has provided innovative marketing to a broad range of clients in over four countries and 17 states. With previous experience working as an account supervisor for advertising giant, Young & Rubicam, and as a member of The Greater Ravalli Foundation and PlayBall board of directors, Spiker will extend his valuable experience and international network of contacts to increase awareness for the foundation.

Susan Williams is the senior vice president, board member, and financial advisor for Missoula-Montana based SG Long Investment Management Group http://www.sglong.com. For over 11 years, Williams has provided SGL with executive experience working extensively in international markets, trading and investments for clients throughout the world. As past president of the Missoula Downtown Association, and as a board member of both Rotary International and the Missoula Ski Education Foundation, Williams will undoubtedly provide sound financial guidance and management experience to the MAPS board of directors.

Joe McLean is owner and operator of the Pharaohplex Multiplex Theatres located in Hamilton, Montana. He generously hosted the premiere of the first MAPS student-directed film at the Pharaohplex and will add cinematic and community relations expertise to the program.
